Modern Sons of the Pharaohs[edit]

Modern Sons of the Pharaohs is a study of Egypt's Coptic Christians, their religious rites and their relationship with Muslims.The author analyses Muslim-Christian relations in Egypt prior to the 1919 Revolution for independence from the British and believes the British occupation has ruined the relationship between Muslims and Copts in Egypt.[1] The book was written after the author lived in Egypt and visited several Coptic families in the Delta and Upper Egypt. The work was published in English in 1918,[2] translated into Arabic by Ahmad Mahmūd and published in 2008 by Dar al-Shuruq in Egypt.
